We’ve answered some of the most frequent questions about conversationsEAST below…
What is conversationsEAST?
We are a free, independent on-line journal providing information, news and, if we can, project support to voluntary endeavours in the East of England Region.
Where does your content come from?
We write and publish regular original news items across a variety of topics – the arts, economics, history, society, community development, architecture and news in the public domain etc.
We hope these reflect the Enlightenment work of projects in the region, providing context that is both interesting and relevant in support of their diverse, community aims.
We publish content submitted by all in our region. Featuring their work, their projects or subjects they have a passion about. (Email texts to editor (at) conversationseast.org ).

Can I use the conversationsEAST logo in my publication to tell people about you?
Absolutely yes. The ‘seated conversations’ image is in the public domain. Although we hope you would use it within the context of the ethical project aims stated above.

We are a volunteer project in East of England Region.
Can I contribute …
Absolutely. You can send content to the editor at conversationsEAST, see above, and we are happy to feature guest journal entries, longer reflective pieces or newsletters about your community project.
Does that mean I can have a web page too?
Yes you can. We will extend the reach and structure of conversationsEAST to encompass the web needs and output of as many projects as we can. We are happy to help you devise your content and to publish it here. Just ask us.
Can I talk to a real person, my project needs seem complex?
